Howdy guys, thought I'd pop in and say hai.

Have pretty much stopped caring about my team the last few weeks with the Hurn donut and even with him back Logue and Clarke are so useless at D6 and M8 that it's like playing with a donut anyways. :(

Didn't even win a league game on the weekend out of my 10 leagues as I only scored 2301.

My overall has dropped to 4000 odd now. I only just checked it this week as I knew it wouldn't be good. I am gutted!

Just been wondering why I put myself through all this s**t. The last 2 seasons have ended horrible for me. This game really gives me the s**ts.

Just want the next 3 weeks over and done with to be honest. So disappointing to be top 4 in all my 10 leagues till round 17 or so and in top 1000 only for it to all fall apart.

Same s**t happened last year too. 2 years in a row is just a kick in the guts.

Having said all that I'll probably come back next season but it won't be worth it unless I still have 4 or so trades left still at this stage...
Trades are overrated i had them and my team still went backwards.

A guy in my work league i swear has not copped an injury all year. Had 6 trades left up until 2 weeks ago lucky prick.

I feel the emotion in this post. At this stage of the year its kinda easy to be negative and wonder what the point of playing is. The only thing i can recommend is to try and make a change for next season. For me, i think im just going to go full unique and mid-priced madness and just try to re-capture the fun of the game. I might change my trading strategy as well but yeah i know at this time of year its easy to wonder 'why do i do this?' but the answer is really that its a fun game, whatever makes it fun to you is the 'path' you should follow. I try not to be super competitive and i think next season i will try to be even less so. Its easy to say that at this time and then be super into it at the start of next season but i really think the best thing about this game is not necessarily achieving a top ranking, its about enjoying footy. I will try to have a 'healthier' relationship with SC next season. I mean im sure ill forget all about this post by the time next season rolls around but i will try to embrace a new philosophy instead of worrying about ranking and all that. I mean im pretty s**t even when i worry about ranking so might as well just try to forget about that and go with my gut. I don't want this game to occupy as much of my time as it currently does so ill do my best to recapture the essence of what makes this game fun. Hope this helps
I like this thinking but for me the truth is the only thing fun about the game is this board and that i can come here and melt about the hacks in my team. I should really quit or stop stressing because its beyond obvious ill never reach the top 1000 but im dumb and will be back again next year expecting things to be different.

You are still ranked higher than me but I should haul you in this week or next

Hey mate, I suggest that you make minor adjustments rather than change your style.

You know your SC and trade well, maybe if it is not a 60/40 must trade then hold.
That would be the only change I'll make
We all need to find some balance

Too conservative with early trades, makes the team uncompetitive & the first part of the season boring
Too aggressive & you'll run out of trades
Damn if you do & damn if you dont

There's a balance there somewhere, GL finding it :D

Most of the season I think I'm ok in terms of not letting this game piss me off too much as I've always been able to trade myself out of trouble if s**t hit the fan.

Being honest with myself I just don't think I've got the balance right with trading which seems to have come back to bite me on the arse 2 years in a row now.

I'm just in too much of a hurry to complete my team so maybe I am moving rookies on too quickly. I dunno...

All I know is that I need to overhaul my game plan next year. It clearly isn't good enough to last a season of sc anymore.

I find it no use making top 4 in nearly all my leagues only 2 get bundled out in straight sets again due to injuries and no trades. My overall plummeting is just the s**t stain on the cake.

Investing so much in this game all year only for it to all turn to s**t really is a kick in the balls.

Not going to let it happen again even if it means going to the outback on holidays for the first 7 weeks of sc so I can't get an internet signal and trade.
That's the attitude - remove yourself from your trading temptation :devil:

You keep saying how badly ranked you are, but I find it hard to understand
I've played against your team & it was too good for mine
Your luck got to change

Thats what i keep thinking but it doesnt.
Mid game injuries ive copped this year and the rough scores.

Fyfe 60
Whitfield x 2, 45 & 65.
Atkins 12
Matt Crouch 45
Cogs 0
Hore 3
Zerrett 55
Bailey Scott gastro induced 25

Not to mention starting dusty and coppibg back to back 50s coz he was tagged....

Anus and jordan clarke scoring 30s during the byes now they are pumping out good scores which shits me.

I have no idea if thats more than the average player but feels like alot.

Yeah got to find the balance in trading and not trading for sure.

Trading in this bloody game is so damn addictive though.

If I pick a good enough starting team then I shouldn't need to trade so early.

I reckon I'll only start with Lloyd, Macrae, Gawn, Grundy and maybe Neale as my players that are over $600,000. The rest will be good value mid price madness which will be more of a fun approach.
